Louise Mackenzie uses sound and new media to explore our entangled relationship with lively materials. For Tentacular Resonances, Mackenzie is taking over Generator for one week to develop an experimental new work that explores the material relationship between resonance and form, collecting and working with local lively materials including clay, seawater and DNA.
Resonant Vessels Workshop
Wednesday 29 August, 10:00 – 17:00
This one-day experimental workshop is aimed at anyone with an interest in sound and intuitive making practices - no previous experience is necessary.
Tentacular Resonances – Gallery Takeover
Thursday 30 - Friday 31 August, 10:00 – 17:00
On Thursday, workshop participants are invited to return to the gallery to join in assembling and testing their resonant vessels as part of the wider tentacular network.
Tentacular Resonances - Performance
Friday 31 August, 16:00
The week will conclude with an improvised performance where Mackenzie invites you to join her in releasing a portion of seawater back to its source, symbolically committing to our inescapable cultural entanglement with the wider environment.
